Some New Icons

Brilliant Worlds has discovered some new icons. With our limited understanding of historical data from this time period, we are at a loss to understand their true meaning. What were they used for? Are they artwork, or some sort of archaic language that time forgot?

This is most likely a riddle best left to the ancients, but one thing is for sure: they are totally going into our next update.
